Pucker Up! National Lipstick Day!

Happy National Lipstick Day!

Throughout the ages, controversy has followed lipstick. British Parliament banned it in 1770 calling it a devilish attempt to trick men into marriage! They even compared it to witchcraft.

Queen Victoria considered it impolite, yet Winston Churchill thought it was an excellent morale booster during WWII and George Washington supposedly was a lipstick wearer.

Oh, how far it’s come!

Lipstick and lip gloss has become part of many people’s daily routines and celebrities too.

We all have out classic standbys and most of us have collected more tubes than we know what to do with. But even with a drawer full of options, we’re never quite content and always on the hunt for our next new favorite. What is your favorite? Which celebrity pout do you like the most?

Speaking of makeup, remember the time a Kardashian went without makeup??
